We were very blessed this year to have had seven Pope Benedict XVI Caritas Award students from our parish community, six from Saint Andrew’s and Saint Bride’s High School and one from Fernhill School.
Fr Sean and Colette Brown led the programme from October last year. The students from Saint Andrew’s and Saint Bride’s were (from L-R) Andrew McPherson, Shannon Brolly, Neeve Brown, Clare McDonald, Megan Kerr and Luke McLean. Also not photographed was Kitty Barrett from Fernhill School.
Throughout the year they took part in the various aspects of parish life – liturgical, spiritual, social and charitable. They had many opportunities to grow in their Catholic faith through catechesis sessions, outreach work and developing a closer link with the parish.
We thank them for all their hard work and energy which has brought so much to the parish and we continue to pray for them that they will continue to grow in their love of the faith and their place within the Catholic Church.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for them.
